Step 1: Processing Mode:
After we design the file in CorelDraw, we send the file to laser software directly by clicking the laser plug-in. Then we input the best setting parameters and “Download” the file to the laser cutter.
Step 2: Put the Acrylic on the Laser Cutter
Place the acrylic sheet on the machine working table, move the laser head to the right start position, adjust the focal distance, press “Origin” button to set the starting point, then press “Start” to run the job.
Step 3: Assemble
After the laser finish working, take out the acrylic pieces and assembling them to a bicycle model.
The acrylic bicycle model is finished.
